Usually we allow for 6 weeks to advertise a vacancy however you can specify the closing date you wish, and we will keep to that

Can I extend the closing date if it has not been filled?

Yes, you can, if you haven’t filled the vacancy just let us know and we will extend the date for you

I want to offer work experience can I still use this form?

Certainly, the form is designed to cover all offers of help from employers

I don’t have a job to fill but would like to offer support of a class talk, industry placement, lead a project etc – how do I get involved?

If I have multiple vacancies available, do I have to list them separately or can they go on one form?
